Chrissy Teigen is giving us a blast from the past with an extremely rare childhood pic on IG.

A few weeks back, the mother of four, 37, shared a dog appreciation post on her page. The slideshow features an array of photos the Sports Illustrated model has taken with the pups in her life, from her childhood to now. The first snap takes her followers back to her adolescent years, with a younger Teigen hugging her beloved basset hound while her mom, Vilailuck, sits beside them.

Meanwhile, the third slide features a more recent picture of Teigen sitting with her current basset hound, Pearl, while eating a bowl of mac and cheese in the California home she shares with her husband John Legend, 44.

The last slide of the slideshow features another photo of Teigen taking a mirror selfie with a Polaroid camera and the basset hound pokes its head from underneath a table.

Other photos featured in the post reveal the canines she and Legend currently share. In the caption, the proud mom wrote, “My OG babies! (always been a basset lover [face emoji surrounded by hearts) give me all the dogs!!”

Back in 2021, Teigen and Legend adopted Pearl after the passing of their beloved dog, Pippa. At the time, she dedicated a heartfelt post to the latest (furry) addition to the Teigen-Legend family. Along with photos of Pearl as a small puppy, she wrote in the caption, “Pearl has touched down into the legend/teigen/stephens household!”

Teigen added, “I grew up with Basset Hounds so I can’t wait for John to see this bouncy, no-bones, jello mold of skin grow into the stubborn logs of love I love so much. Excited for this new little heart to add love to our home.” 

Once a basset hound girl, always a basset hound girl.
